Donald Trump golf club employs undocumented workers

Illegal Immigrants Trump Golf Course

Victorina Morales, an immigrant from Guatemala, and Sandra Diaz, a native of Costa Rica, told the New York Times that they both worked for years at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., along with several other undocumented immigrants, and that their supervisors knew their employment violated USA law.

"An employee of the golf course drives her and a group of others to work every day, she says, because it is known that they can not legally obtain driver's licenses".

According to the Times, Morales said that managers at Trump's club had taken steps to help her evade detection as an undocumented worker.

It appears unlikely that Trump would be aware of either woman's immigration status.

The praise for Trump undermines Morales's suggestion that she revealed her status in a high-minded protest of Trump's 2016 mandate to curb illegal immigration. Perhaps emboldened by that talk, she says her supervisor started verbally abusing workers, calling them "stupid illegal immigrants".

Morales kept silent for the first two years of Trump's presidency, despite remarks that hurt her.

Morales and Sandra Diaz, a former Bedminster employee who is now a legal US resident, reached out to the Times through their lawyer, who is representing them in "immigration matters".

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", a Trump Organization spokesperson told Fox News.

"The president has been half-serious about stopping illegal immigration by not taking away the jobs magnet", said Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, a group pushing to reduce immigration.

The Trump Organization, which owns the golf course, did not comment specifically on Ms.[Victorina] Morales or Ms.[Sandra] Diaz.

Romero, the women's lawyer, said that the abusive behavior needs to be addressed by law enforcement.

He added that there were more like the two workers he represents working for Trump without documents and stressed the management "absolutely" facilitated their illegal employment. "If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".

The White House did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

"While Trump boasts about jobs and his hardline immigration policies, these courageous women have put their own jobs and lives on the line to pursue justice for themselves and other exploited workers", said Sandra Cordero, director of Families Belong Together.

Her lawyer, Anibal Romero, has called for federal and state investigations into the matter. She said she did not expect to return to work. Beck said Trump has "let us down in his promise to help American workers" because he hasn't "put his shoulder behind a mandatory E-Verify bill".
